THis is what I have in the /boot/grub/grub.conf

title Upgrade to Fedora 16 (Verne)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/upgrade/vmlinuz preupgrade repo=hd::/var/cache/yum/preupgrade ks=hd:UUID=6740d6d6-1430-434a-9962-16460cb3daa5:/boot/upgrade/ks.cfg
initrd /boot/upgrade/initrd.img

but it fails to run the update, ie it just fails to run.

This it is a multiboot machine, I also tried to boot manually
( by setting:
root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/upgrade/vmlinuz
initrd /boot/upgrade/initrd.img

BUt with the same failure!

What is wrong? In theory I like exactly as recommanded.
